When Duncan Aviation needed an aircraft paint booth for a new MRO facility in Provo, Utah, Chad Doehring was faced with an easy decision. He had seen GFS Aircraft Paint Booths in action already, and was well aware of their efficiency and the high-quality finishes they consistently produce.
On large jobs or jobs with multiple equipment installs, it is essential to invest in finishing equipment from a manufacturer with project management capabilities. Businesses with dedicated project managers can invest more time in project planning; conduct more frequent project reviews to assess risks, milestones and value; and measure project outcomes more frequently.
Integrating painting robots into your finishing operation can free up floor space, increase productivity and improve finish quality. A painting robot can be cheaper, more accurate and more reliable than a manual painter, with the ability to essentially work around the clock.
Adding a paint booth insert to an aircraft hangar is often simpler and quicker than converting a hangar into an environment suitable for spraying. Aside from the time savings, it also yields better airflow, cleaner air and better lighting. The end result is an improved environment for the painter, making it easier to do a high-quality paint job.
When considering a new corrosion control facility for C-130 aircraft, it is helpful to understand new technologies available for paint booths that comply with the latest federal and local codes. Some of these technology and code advancements can provide operational cost savings throughout the life of the facility.
Aircraft paint booths must be designed to accommodate the unique shape and sheer size of aircraft in order to reduce the painter’s exposure to the hazards of the process, lower energy costs, improve paint finish quality and increase production. The single biggest factor in accomplishing this is providing airflow where it is needed most — at the surface of the aircraft.
Selecting the correct temperature settings for paint booths can be tricky. Luckily, Global Finishing Solutions’ (GFS) experts have the answers to your questions. Here is a short guide on how to correctly set the temperature in your paint booth.
During the summer of 2017, GFS designed and installed finishing equipment for Marvin Engineering’s Southern California facility. Marvin came to GFS to replace their outdated equipment. With the success of their business and increased production, Marvin recognized that they needed to increase their throughput, eliminate rework, add automation and improve the overall quality of their performance coatings.
Built with efficiency in mind, Park Rapids Aviation is able to provide aircraft paint services along with maintenance, interior refurbishment and avionics thanks to their GFS aircraft paint booth.
GFS aircraft paint booths are designed and engineered with the following in mind: safety, airflow, temperature and humidity control, contamination control, lighting and energy efficiency.
